** spoiler alert ** This is a great book. Each Presidential Administration is covered. I really enjoyed reading it.

Some cool things I learned...

When they did President George Washington's Temple Work, the ordained him as a High Priest, where they normally ordain the dead to be Elders.

President Hinckley gave President Clinton a copy of "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" the very same day that Monica Lewinsky began working in the White House and two days before their relationship began. Talk about timely.

I learned that a lot of what I think about the different Presidents comes from how the Church as a whole viewed the President. I found out why I have bias against Presidents such as Fillmore, Jackson, and Van Buren. The relationship between the government and the church has, and will continue to be, fascinating to me.
